Vauxhall Offer Corsa-e Free Charging Equivalent To 30,000 Miles< Back to blog
Having more incentives for electric cars has always been the proposed solution for improving uptake. Vauxhall has now made a point of practicing this with its one and only electric car, the Corsa-e, with a limited-time offer of free charge for 30,000 miles.
The Vauxhall Corsa-e is already considered a solid entry point for anyone looking to get behind the wheel of an electric car on ‘the cheap’. Like the Renault Zoe, it’s priced at slightly more than £28,000 (inc. the government’s plug-in grant).
This deal is for new Corsa-e models on a Personal Contract Hire (PCH, or ‘leasing’) agreement, the details of which are:
- Prices for the Corsa-e with these benefits start from £330 per month
- Includes a free home charging unit and exclusive tariff, which comes with 30,000 miles worth of electricity credit
- Limited-time offer runs from 8th December 2020 to 11th January 2021
- Free six-month subscription to the Polar charging network, the UK’s largest EV charging network (more than 7,000 publicly-accessible charging points)

How will Corsa-e free charging work?
In a recent press release, Vauxhall said about its Corsa-e offer:
“The offer gives access to an exclusive British Gas Dual Fuel Tariff, with Vauxhall crediting each customer’s account to cover the cost of charging for the equivalent of 30,000 miles over a three-year period. Running an equivalent Corsa 1.2 100PS petrol model for 30,000 miles would cost £2,900 at today’s petrol prices. The limited-time offer is available on customer orders from 8th December 2020 to 11th January 2021.
“The offer is available on Personal Contract Hire purchases, whilst stocks last, with prices for the award-winning Corsa-e with the free Home Charging Unit and 30,000 miles worth of electricity starting from just £330 per month with a £1,980 initial rental fee.”
How can I get hold of a Corsa-e with free charging?
Vauxhall are offering this agreement directly through their own website, so you will need to get a quote from them if you want to get your hands on one.
Two trim levels are available on the Corsa-e deal with these perks – the SE Nav trim for £330 per month, or a better-equipped Elite Nav spec for £345 per month. Bare in mind that an initial rental of £1,980 is required for the SE Nav trim, while a £2,070 initial rental is required for the Elite Nav version.
Compare the differences between the two trims below to find out which one is best for you.
Vauxhall Corsa-e charging costs
- Home charging (16p/kWh): £8.00 for a full charge
- Public charging (30p/kWh): £12.00 for an 80% charge
As you can see, the Corsa-e shares a trait that many other family electric cars have in common: that is, it’s cheaper to run than a standard petrol or diesel model.
